West Ham United vs Fulham Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

West Ham were held to a 1-1 draw by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park as the inconsistent run for the Hammers continued. A penalty from Mark Noble helped West Ham take the lead in the first half, but the Eagles were on top throughout the game. Palace claimed a deserved equaliser in the 76th minute when Wilfred Zaha scored from close range. Fulham lost for a fourth time in five matches as Manchester United claimed a comfortable 3-0 victory at Craven Cottage. Despite a good start, United fell behind due to a defensive mistake in the 14th minute when Paul Pogba scored. Anthony Martial doubled their advantage with a fine solo goal in the 23rd minute before Pogba’s brace was completed with a second-half penalty.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Fulham are deep in relegation trouble with growing signs of the team being cut off from safety, as they have fallen eight points behind Cardiff. A London derby is usually a feisty affair and this should result in both teams struggle for momentum. However, West Ham do perform well at home and the team will be looking for a first win in six matches. West Ham are unbeaten in four games at home and I would back a win for Pellegrini’s men.

Fulham continue to be let down by a lack of goals with the team only grabbing two goals from open play in the last five away matches. West Ham’s defence will press high up the pitch and not provide any space for the opponents. I would back under 2.5 goals in this fixture.

West Ham United Preview

Manuel Pellegrini has been unable to get West Ham into a challenge for European places since the club have been far too inconsistent in order to compete with the likes of Wolves and Watford this season. The Hammers have a lot of strength across the squad, but the club also has had to deal with a large number of injury problems throughout the season. The January transfer window also threw a lot of uncertainties about the future of star player Marko Arnautovic.

West Ham United Team News

Winston Reid (ligament), Manuel Lanzini (cruciate ligament), Carlos Sanchez (ligament), Andriy Yarmolenko (Achilles tendon), Jack Wilshere (ankle), and Fabian Balbuena (knee) are unavailable for the Hammers.

Fulham Preview

Claudio Ranieri has been unable to stop Fulham from going through a terrible patch of form once again and there are clear signs of the club’s confidence being affected. Even though the January signings like Ryan Babel have made an impact offensively, Fulham have simply been unable to take their chances. At the other end, they have also been defensively naive with quite a lot of mistakes. These have contributed to Fulham picking up only 17 points so far this season and very few teams have been able to survive in the division after being put into this stage. Aleksandar Mitrovic has been the major source of goals for Fulham but with the lack of contribution from the rest.

Fulham Team News

Alfie Mawson (knee) and Marcus Bettinelli (knee) are unavailable for the Cottagers.
